My trainer is trying to push Isagenix Cleanse for Life on me. I've been telling him for months I'm not interested because of course if you don't eat for 9 days you'll lose weight but who's interested in losing muscle mass???

He claims everyone who's tried it has lost at least 15 lbs of FAT in 9 days and that it has sped up their metabolism. I say that if that were the case it would be FDA approved, all over the news and every doctor in the country would be selling it.

I am NOT going to try it but was wondering if anyone has tried it and agrees with me that it's a gimmick and a waste of money.

Ask your trainer for more in depth information about it. I used to be a trainer too and would NEVER have suggested my clients do a cleanse as they would do crazy things like the Master Cleanse and put their body into a state of starvation. The Isagenix cleanse does not starve the body - as you are still eating. There are other programs than the 9 day as well and may be better suited to you. The 9 day is quite intense and may not be something you are ready for. Just like when a trainer takes you on as a new client and they do an intake form, the trainer should have in depth information about your current eating habits, such as coffee, water, pop intake, amount of veggies and fruits per day, number of bowel movements etc... There is also a 30 day and a 14 day foundational cleanse. In the end, if you are not open to doing a cleanse then the trainer should not go on about it but many trainers will partner with a company/product they believe in and will feel that if they do not suggest their program to you that they are doing you an injustice as they know how well it will work for you. Getting fit isn't just about working out, nutrition plays a huge role. You may want to look at the ingredients and see. Some products that people push have fake sugars, colors and flavours and are made with soy etc... if you know what to look for, then you may consider starting off slowly with just the shakes after your workout to help you build more lean muscle. I tried it 6 years ago and loved it.

Its not a gimmick at all and not a cleanse at all either....its a way of alkalining your body. Research what thats all about before you start critizing and telling everyone its a scam. Putting negative information out there when you have no clue what you're talking about is just another way for people who SAY they want to be healthy yet want to DO nothing about it. If its not for you then its not for you......the proof is in the pudding tho, everyone who is on it has results & its lifestyle change for them for the better.

What makes you think that people who are recommending against it, have not done their research?

Does this mean you tried it? Did it work? Did it make you feel ill at all? I seriously want to know, I don't think it's for me, but I'm really not informed on it. I find it funny that a trainer would push any product though ohwell

A trainer would push it because Isagenix is an MLM marketing platform and the person pushing the product stands to gain from this.

Wait, did you just tell people to do research and you're talking about it alkalizing your body? Pot meet kettle

Why would I want to "alkaline" my body? Pretty sure changing the chemical makeup of my system is the last thing I want to happen on any day.

I tried to try it, bought a 30 day cleanse, stayed on it for 10 days and now am simply using the MRShake, mostly for breakfast. I bought it and of course realized that I don't need it:) I'll do another 9 or 10 days when I am ready but will not use it again.
It was not as hard as I expected it to be, the shakes are quite filling, the cleanse day was hard but if you put your mind to it, it is fine. I may have made it harder by working out, have not lost much weight though at all. Overall, I felt good, energetic but it happens if, I for example, simply eat light, salads, etc. and get adrenalin from regular exercise.

i have a friend that did it and he lost a lot of weight i dont know much about it...Its kinda pricey for me

I'm actually quite willing to entertain any research she has about alkanining, or about the supposed benefits of their "9 day cleanse".

It just bugs me when people make the assumption that "they don't agree with me therefore they are not educated". That's an arrogant and douche-nuggety stance to take.

RPatz alkalines were imbalanced before he was a star too, and Isagenix fixed him right up! True story.

I tried it after a friend had success with it.

I found it a) expensive, b) disgusting, c) not substantial enough, d) it didn't work (perhaps because of b & c I couldn't follow through with it the way it's intended).

Wow, thank you so much for this information. It's no surprise but definitely good to read unbiased info from someone who has no financial gain from Isagenix.

Dump your trainer, that's unprofessional and unscientific.

I agree with ^ ! It's not a sustainable approach and it's pretty expensive. Healthy eating is the way to go:)
